Chelsea ‘make £85m Wesley Fofana decision’ as problem in Barcelona transfer emerges, as Marc Cucurella makes his debut.
Wesley Fofana, a defender for Leicester City, is a player that Chelsea is reportedly interested in signing.
According to rumors, Todd Boehly and company recently made a £70 million offer for Fofana, who is highly regarded by Leicester.
According to Jacob Steinberg of the Guardian, Chelsea are prepared to test Leicester’s determination in their pursuit of the French defender by offering up to £85 million for Fofana.
Without a question, the 21-year-old central defender is a gifted prospect with a lot of promise, but it must be acknowledged that £85m is a ridiculously high price.
Although the Blues definitely need to reinforce this position, it is unclear if paying £85 million on a defender who has only made 35 Premier League games is a wise course of action.
Chelsea is looking to trade Marcos Alonso to Barcelona.
Chelsea wants to sign Barcelona full-back Sergino Dest in a trade for Marcos Alonso.
This summer, Alonso has been frequently linked with a transfer to Barcelona, and conversations are still ongoing.
The Mirror asserts that there may be a snag in the deal since Chelsea is interested in right-back Dest and wants to exchange players with the Catalans this summer.
The fact that La Liga denied the Catalans’ attempts to register their new summer additions may possibly delay Alonso’s transfer to Barcelona, leading them to prioritize unloading players before signing the Chelsea left-back.
Despite this, Alonso continues to seem destined to leave Stamford Bridge this summer with the addition of Marc Cucurella.
